tried something new for dinner tonight - revised my lentil salad made with brown lentils, cucumber, carrots, pepper, dried tomatoes and sunflowerseeds by topping it with deliciously lemon-tahini-dressing - was definitely a good choice really like it
Lunch anyone ???? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Filling your body with good things is such a GREAT idea ! I feel the sunshine giving me energy through my plant food ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gooood morning ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyone want to share this salad with me?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been making lots of salads lately... But this one turned out particularly well, Because the figs and avocado were on point ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whats your favourite salad ingredient?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Curious!! Right or Left ?
I actually added way more dressing after the pic was taken (I thought it’d look cute but really, i prefer the no-dressing pic you can see more the ingredients lololol #firstworldproblem!!) DRESSINGS !! Lets talk about them ! Often we say salads are as unhealthy as other things because of the dressing, and that you should always take it on the side! While this is true in most restaurants or take outs, dressings can actually be made super healthy and delicious and I believe they encourage you to eat way more salads because it’s enjoyable!! The key is: keep ingredients natural, unprocessed, minimise oil. A bit of oil is fine, but don’t drop 4tbsp !
I aim eating a big salad everyday and it’s most of the time my lunch because it makes me feel full but not stuffed ! I also make sure to include key ingredients : carbs, healthy fats, protein (which can be part of the carb/fat, ex quinoa, nuts etc!!) Joining #21earthydays full force!! who is too ?
For this salad I used :
3/4 head of fresh lettuce
Cucumber (i know, not in season but .. crav !!!)
Buckwheat (super duper good)
Sunflower Sprouts (good for guts!!)
Avocado (how not!)
Small handful raw cashew
Half remaining cucumber
half lemon juice
1 tsp ACV
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp natural soy yoghurt
BLEND, pour, mix and devour !!! 🤪
